Hello,
I am a lampwork bead artist and when I make beads and buttons, I aim to be original in my designs, and love to mix colours and add silver, copper, enamel and anything else that will go with glass. I absolutely love glass frit and use a huge amount as nearly all of the beads that I make are made with glass frit. I buy an awful lot of frit and thought that it would be a good idea to open and Etsy shop so that I could share my frit and frit blends with others.

All of the frit in my shop is made from premium glass, by manufacturers, including, Gaffer, Reichenbach, Kugler and Effettre. All of the frit blends in my shop have been hand blended by me and are made from glass CoE 91-96 and are suitable for use on glass CoE 90-104, when used in small amounts such as 5%.

Many of my frit blends are made from grain size K1, however this size can very between manufacturers. Some of my frit blends are made from varying grain sized frit as I like to be a little different, in this case, it is important to mix up the frit well before use.

COE
Reichenbach 94 (+/-2)
Gaffer 96
Kugler 96
Effetre 104

To give an idea of what the frit looks like, I have made some sample paddles and beads using some of the frit and frit blends in my Etsy shop, however, different torch settings and different color glass bases may change the look and colors of the frit.

When taking photographs I aim to capture the true colours of the frit and frit blends; however, at times it can be difficult to capture the exact colors.

Additional policies and FAQs
The glass frit in my Etsy shop is for lampwork, flamework and bead making use, to be used as a design feature on beads and buttons etc. The frit is made from glass and should be kept away for children. When using glass frit, it is important to wear a mask as the dust produced may be potentially dangerous when inhaled. The frit may be a different CoE from the base glass that you may use; it is suitable for use on base glass of 90 - 104 CoE when using approximately 5%; an important tip is to make a test bead to ensure there are not incompatibility issues. When using a base glass of the same CoE as the frit, the frit can be used in any amount.
